Poor ;oser. Here's Oxford's definition of protocol :
PROTOCOL : noun.
Now looking for PROTOCOL, verb. Oops, nowhere to be found. Now let's check JBH dictionary, LMAO (LRS tm reg'd)
I hereby "protocol" you to the dunce corner, cap and all.
Do you even know what protocol is and what it is used for? Many occasions, from state dinners to airport and railway greetings to order of precedence, etc. It's etiquette,and takes most of its origins from France, hence note verbale, corps diplomatique. Do you know, in the case of correspondence between sovereign states, the definition of a Note Verbale and why it is called that? Do you know that protocol notes are first and third-person notes, never ever second person? That they always begin with the politest and most formal of greetings, ending with a similar formal salutation, no matter how harsh the paragraphs in-between? Do you know that notes verbales are ALWAYS written on vellum and will always follow, as confirmation, an e-mail? Do you know that they must have a raised seal, otherwise not genuine?
Do you know anything?
ARE YOU STILL LEARNING ENGLSIH FROM THE OXFORD DICTIONARY?
What sort of English is that and you know of, as is British?
North America is not England while you take the Queen as your reference for the English language.
As technology speeds up RAPIDLY fast, social CHANGE AND OTHER CHANGE EVOLVE THE MANY EXAMPLES OF CHANGE, INCLUDING VERBIAGE AND wording.
FOR these are the new times, it is North America, as communication wording, nomenclature terms of usage, etc., are not based on the foreign British language from Oxford dictionary, including slangs.
As many changes occur in current days in many matters, the dictionary has not fully reflected all definitions of words.
This is the nowadays' TIME, which supports Protocol usage as a verb as well.
